Actor Shia LaBeouf took a cue from Daniel Day-Lewis' school of method acting, telling MTV that he dropped acid for his character in "The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman," and sent footage of his drug use to friends and co-workers for their feedback.
"I'm just scared," LaBeouf said of acting with collegues he admires, like "Necessary Death" co-star Evan Rachel Wood.
LaBeouf said he'd never dropped acid before, but he'd tape himself using it so that his fellow actors could assess his "performance."
"I remember trying to conjure this and sending tapes and Evan being like, 'Yeah, that's good, but that's not, but this is, but that ain't," LeBeouf said.
"Necessary Death" isn't the only role LaBeouf is willing to go all the way for. The 26-year-old actor admitted in August that he'd sent real sex tapes of himself and his girlfriend to Lars Von Trier to land a part in "Nymphomaniac."
